Did the Huffington Post fear their article would flounder without a pun?

It sounds like they could have found a harpoon or spear handy though. Or even a louisville slugger. Don't seem very prepared for people fishing for sharks.

Never had a shark THAT big jump in the boat, but it was fairly common when salmon fishing outside Monterey Bay to have a shark try to board the boat while we were pulling in a catch. That's was the purpose of the hammer and baseball bat.

Worthless, at that... if it had a video of the shark jumping into the boat - maybe - but I didn't see that, jumping through the video.

Man, Makos in NJ really want out of the water. I mean, another did the exact same thing to the exact same guys about 2 weeks ago.

I can't believe this happened a 2nd time.

//Repeat.

The first time I saw this story, I kinda got the impression that they were doing some practice shark fishing for an upcoming contest.  This article says they were doing some "catch and release".  Harldy the same thing.  If you catch a shark, you need to kill it before it kills you.  That's just the rules of the game.

Reasons why I stick to piers and surf-casting: do not want big fish with big teeth jumping at me.  Big, angry bluefish are as far as I go.

/hooked into a thresher shark off the pier once.  Scariest fight ever.

300 pound shark jumped right in the boat, chief. We was comin' back, from about 30 miles east of Matua, just laid a slick of chum.  The real fishy chum. Two men wrassling this shark.  Real, thrashing shark. Didn't get it tied off for about half an hour. Mako. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the boat, chief? You tell by lookin' from the bow to the stern. What we didn't know... was that fish was so hungry, he was gonna start eating our boat.

So we tried to wrangle him with a gaff. You know it's... kinda like a big ol' hook.  And the idea was, we get the gaff in his gills, but the shark just started poundin' and flailin' and thrashin' and we almost thought the shark would get away. But we was thinking, he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites your broom and those black eyes roll over white. And then, in spite of all the gaffin' and the ropin' and the pokin' he just comes and rips the boat to pieces.
You know that was the time I was most frightened? Seeing him eating the gunwale. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, one shark jumped into a boat, We've got a hell of a fish story, June the 29, 2013

Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

Sometimes you jump the shark, sometimes the shark jumps you.

Farkin' aye, mate.  You can't just jam your thumb in a bloody shark's mouth to free the hook, like you can with a farkin' freshwater bass.

My only lament is that today is June 28th, not June 29th.
